Highnam Joint Winners of the Year 3/4 Tag Rugby Festival

24 April 2018 (by admin)

An update from an exciting afternoon of rugby

This afternoon Highnam welcomed 4 local teams to take part in the annual Year 3/4 tag rugby festival. Hartpury, Hempsted, Redmarley and Staunton & Corse. The teams all played each other once with Highnam finishing top of the leaderboard with 13 points following 4 wins and a draw. The semi final line up saw Highnam playing Staunton and Corse and Hartpury v Hempsted A. After some impressive line breaks Higham reached the final and were up against Hempsted. The first half saw Higham 3-1 up but Hempsted fought back in the second half to square the game 5-5 when the final whistle blew. Both teams played very well and deservedly shared the trophy. Well done to all the players who represented their schools during the festival and a big thank you to the Hartpury referees, coaches and team supporters. We look forward to welcoming you all back to Highnam Academy again soon.
